AUSTRALIA: Heated affair at LeFevre

Due to the continuing extreme heatwave, the Le Fevre club opted to stage their second race meeting of the season on Friday evening and hope for cooler weather. However, the temperature at start time was still 37°C!

The high temperature did not prevent an evening of excellent racing with former Australian Champion, Ty Geertsen, taking the main event from Paul White and Rob Fleming.

Former competitor, David Watkins, made an impressive come back after a four year break with Lucy Milligan and Letitia Collins heading the womens heats.

Lucy and Letitia would, at present, appear to be the back bone of the national squad that will face Great Britain in November.
